Artist profile

Katy Doncaster creative practitioner, visual artist, forest schools

I have worked in education and with communites since 1996, helping people realise their creativity and expanding the curriculum using poetry, storymaking and telling, sculpture, installation, costume and making of all sorts. I’m especially interested in history, myth, legend and folk lore, working with children in growing food and cooking. I deliver outdoors education projects, including Eco Schools. I am a Level 3 Forest Schools Leader, and I am trained to deliver the John Muir Awards.
